The Lightning have interest in the Avalanche's Ryan O'Reilly but are unlikely to be a fit because they don't have the players to use in a trade for him.

The Avs are receiving a lot of interest from the Eastern Conference teams, which makes sense because the team would prefer to move him out of conference, if a trade is what it ultimately ends up doing. The Tampa Bay Times' Damiam Cristodero says it's not the money -- which could be $5 million per year -- that would prevent a deal, but the cost in players the Bolts just don't have.
